In the stable on the first Christmas night, the ox, the donkey, and the cow have their own stories to tell. Their gifts and messages and the example of the old shepherd who cares for them can help children develop a respect and gratitude for all animals whose work and lives sustain us. How the old shepherd comes to understand what these animals mean for humankind makes this story a compelling one. The story is intended for reading in all seasons.
